Appoggiature

Here is my tool to convert a standard NWC grace note to an appoggiatura.

The tool converts all the selected combinations of a single grace note coupled with a standard one.
Please take care to include the standard note in the selection.

For details see https://forum.noteworthycomposer.com/?topic=8429.0
(Many thanks to Rick)

You might want to look at Figures  50 - 52 <here>.
Whole notes and above don't work. The limit is 15 grace items.

I think the goal should be to modify playback, not the appearance of View or Print. I'd expect something like this:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.5,Single)
|Note|Dur:8th,Grace,Slur|Pos:2
|Spacer|Width:50
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:1
|Bar
|Note|Dur:4th,Grace,Slur|Pos:-1
|Note|Dur:4th,Dotted|Pos:-2
|Bar
|Note|Dur:Whole,Grace|Pos:2z^|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Note|Dur:8th,Grace,Slur|Pos:2
|Spacer|Width:50
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:1
|Bar
|Note|Dur:Whole,Grace|Pos:-1z^|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Rest|Dur:8th,Grace|Visibility:Never
|Note|Dur:4th,Grace,Slur|Pos:-1
|Note|Dur:4th,Dotted|Pos:-2
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End
of course you could look at it from the other end. Have the user enter the playback, select it and have a tool turn that into appoggiatura.

This indeed happens with whole notes.
At the moment I see no need to find a workaround.
I hope an appoggiatura to a whole note is not so frequent.

Absolutely!

The only differences I can see between my tool output and your example are:
  • the use of a headless hidden whole instead of a hidden copy of the visible grace note
  • the use of a spacer to keep the visible grace note closer
  • (Edit) the slur between the grace and the main note (I overlooked it)

I usually try to avoid editor-invisible items for I can easily forget their existence...
The grace note duration, as far as I know, is not significant.
The use of the spacer can be nice; I simply didn't think of it.

Both play the same, so what?

Thank you for the link to The Project Gutenberg. Very interesting.
I'll make the small adjustments regarding the dotted notes.
Of course I never hoped to cover all the possibilities...

Replaced the tool in the first message.

Version 1.01:
Adjusted the appoggiatura of dotted notes.
Added slur to the visible grace note.
